Hive Supply

COVID-19 Update to Hive Supply Operations

The Hive Supply, our campus-based food pantry, is still open for student use during this time. To comply with current recommendations for  social distancing we have created pre-packed brown paper bags with items from the Hive Supply as a grab and go option. Students able to pick a bag of food items on campus either in the atrium, outside of the Hive Supply (College Center 407) or in front of the Heintz Center Hive Supply location (H1128B).

 

See more information on Campus and Community Resources during the COVID-19 crisis.

Hive Supply is RCTC’s on campus food pantry. Currently enrolled RCTC students have access to Hive Supply which is stocked with non-perishable food items, personal hygiene products, and other items such as toilet paper, laundry soap, pans, and utensils. Inventory varies based on time of year and donations. Free to students in need. Students may visit once per week and collect a maximum of 10 items per visit.
